    Are you having problem in multiplayer or singleplayer? In multiplayer it could just as well be desync that's the issue, but if the problems are in singleplayer it's time to get the fixing-kit out.

        I haven't played much ArmA2 in multiplayer yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it is a slightly overloaded server that has trouble keeping up with everything, so it causes some desync.

        You could always keep an eye out for if someone is currently connecting or disconnecting to the server around the time you get the lag. That's a common source of desync (server has to transfer lots of data to a new person connecting, and if someone's game crashed the server can get a bit of a hiccup when trying to establish a connection)

          You may be lagging when someone connects to the server, if they have any custom faces or sounds then everyone on the server has to download them, causing de-sync as some people download quicker than others.

            that was a common bug on ARMA and in OFP I read somewhere. ACE seemed to erase it for me so...I don't have ARMA 2 yet though.

              I've never seen a character move smoothly during MP in ArmA 1 or 2. And it's worse the further away they are. I thought it was the same for everyone.

                Could be a bandwidth issue?

                  in arma 1/ ace ai would always do that, i've seen it a lot in arma 2 too. I blame it on the poor choice of using ofp netcode still.

                    It is probably your network.

                      What i've seen up to now is desync. I know this because my connection is rock solid and the server is most likely powerful enough to host. Desync is caused by bugs in maps. Maps that are fairly new can cause this.

                        desync can also be caused by players joining in progress, especially if they have custom add ons, like faces.

                          Yeah, there is quite some desync in Arma 2.
